UK and EU students are those who can show that:
- They have been ‘normally resident in the UK/EU’ - not just for educational purposes - for at least three years before the start of their course
- Who can demonstrate that they are ‘settled’ in the UK/EU.
‘Settled’ means having either:
- Indefinite leave to enter or remain
- Having the right of abode in the UK.
For those students who are resident outside the EU, the fee varies according to whether they are taking a research degree in a science or in an arts discipline.
Advice for international students about fees and finance for research degrees for international students can be found on the website of the UK Council for International Student Affairs (UKCISA). Advice about visa requirements can be found on the UK Visas and Immigration website.
